Dado with double sequence of interlaced arches (type 30)

Dado carved in bas-relief (type 30). The decoration is composed of two horizontal sections: the upper section consists of an epigraphic band in cursive script, the lower section of a double sequence of interlaced trilobated arches. The arches are plain inside and alternate with vertical motifs created by split-palmettes and fleur-de-lis; they also alternate in the lower and the upper course.

The height of the larger panel is 64.5 cm (incomplete); its width varies from 33.5 cm (incomplete) to 46.5 cm (complete) and 50 cm (incomplete); its thickness is unknown.

The artifacts were found re-employed in the Ghazni area (the surveys occurred in the late 1950s-1970s).
